A Real Saab Story

I had to laugh when I read this article about the least reliable luxury cars. One of the highlights is Saab's objection to being included on the list.

A Saab spokesman says the company's internal data show that the most recent Saab 9-3s "have very good quality results," and that labeling the car "unreliable" paints the wrong picture for potential buyers.
With a bit of research, I've narrowed down that "picture" to either this one or this one.

The other thing that I find funny is that somehow J.D. Power's "first 90 days of ownership" survey is being equated with reliability. People think I'm crazy because I like to get a new car about every 5 years. I don't want to deal with any problems and I think that's worth it. I can understand how some people think that's a waste of money. But compare that to the guy using the 90-day reliability survey for his gauge. Is this guy buying a new car every 3 months? I can't imagine having so much money that I would do that.

Well, I can imagine it. I just can't picture it.

We saw a license plate on the drive down to NYC last weekend:


(yes, it was on a SAAB)

Thanks for the homage.

Should have mentioned: it actually made me laugh out loud. Does it truly make sense now or did you just use it for comic effect?

cf - :)

amoose - I have long understood what is supposed to mean. But, of course, it was also for comic effect.
